Democratic Republic of the Congo on a Vespa scooter!

I don’t know what’s going wrong with me. The last month I’m trying to write about the amazing experience I had traveling through both Congos and I cannot write a word!
So until I manage to express myself, have a look to the second part of the video I made.

This video is dedicated to the Greek Community in Lubumbashi for their remarkable help, their amazing hospitality and their enthusiasm when they first met me!!!
Guys thanks for everything!!!

I would also like to thank one more time scootershop.gr for their support. When the “Kinshasa – Lubumbashi” finished they offered me all the spare parts I needed!!! Also many thanks to my friend Kosmas who offered the shipping of the package to Africa!!!

Last but not least, I’d like to thanks all of you people for your help:


guys many thanks!!!

I’m waiting for your comments, your suggestions and any questions you may have!

If you really enjoyed the video “like” it and “share” it!!!


enjoy the ride 05

  1. OH MY GOD, these roads are unbelievable! Quick question if I may: these crazy roads are the main highways over there or you were going off the beaten tracks? I’m not sure I want to know the answer actually!! ahahahah. Keep going, love it!

    1. Hello Romain, thanks for the comment!
      Yes, these roads are the main and only connection between Kinshasa and Lubumbashi!!
      Unfortunately (for the locals but fortunately for me because I loved the whole experience) there are almost no highways or even tar roads in D.R.Congo and if you want to cross the country you have to pass from these exact roads!

  2. Στέργιο απολαμβάνω πάρα πολύ να βλέπω τα videos σου.Σαν να βλέπω ντοκιμαντέρ ήταν αυτό.Μπράβο!
